MSG - A Deadly Killer in Your Foods!

What is worse for your health than alcohol, nicotine and many drugs and yet can be found in many kitchen cabinets? The answer is monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer. Originally associated with Chinese Food, MSG is now being added to thousands of food products found on your local grocery shelves and at restaurants.

MSG is used in canned soups, crackers, meats, salad dressings, frozen dinners and much more. It is found in food served at restaurants and school cafeteria and, even in baby food and infant formula.

MSG was invented in Japan in 1908. It is an artificial flavor enhancer based upon chemicals found in seaweed. And it does make processed food taste fresher and smell better, but at what cost to your health?

Why is MSG dangerous? It it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death, causing brain damage to varying degrees -- and potentially even triggering or worsening learning disabilities, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease and more. It is a brain killer!

Other adverse effects linked to MSG use are: Obesity Eye damage, Headaches Fatigue & disorientation and Depression. Symptoms of MSG poisoning include: Numbness, Burning sensation, Tingling, Facial pressure or tightness, Chest pain or difficulty breathing, Headache, Nausea, Rapid heartbeat, Drowsiness and Weakness.

Getting MSG out of your diet, may not be easy as the FDA does not care to regulate this poisonous substance. Almost any processed food is likely to contain MSG - so stick to whole foods whenever possible. Ask restaurants for the MSG free items on their menu.

Eliminate any foods from you diets that contain: Autolyzed Yeast, Calcium Caseinate, Gelatin Glutamate, Glutamic Acid, Hydrolyzed Protein, Monopotassium Glutamate, Monosodium Glutamate, Sodium Caseinate, Textured Protein, Yeast Extract, Yeast Food and Yeast Nutrient.

Additionally, stay away from: Flavors and Flavorings Seasonings, Natural Flavors and Flavorings, Natural Pork Flavoring, Natural Beef Flavoring, Natural Chicken Flavoring, Soy Sauce, Soy Protein Isolate, Soy Protein, Bouillon Stock, Broth, Malt Extract, Malt Flavoring, Barley Malt, Whey Protein, Carrageenan, Maltodextrin, Pectin, Enzymes Protease, Corn Starch, Citric Acid, Powdered Milk, Anything Protein Fortified, Anything Enzyme Modified and Anything Ultra-Pasteurized.

Remember that the processed food industry cares about money first and your health last. Get MSG out of your diet by eating real, whole foods.
